"These eight volumes are not a compilation from the works or words of others, but a description of some of the results of actual work for the past fifty years among millions of living plants, including almost everyone known to growers and many thousand species never seen in cultivation, which have been discovered by hundreds of my collectors of seeds of wild plants from every part of the earth, most of whom (strangers to me) have sent these seeds in gratitude for the work accomplished here, or in exchange for seeds of my improved plants for the various climates from which the wild seeds came."
"This work, if carried on extensively, requires constant daily and hourly attention, and these volumes have been mostly written on paper pads during the occasional wakeful hours of night, without light, and of course use of my eyes, which have always been too much occupied with experiments while daylight lasted."
Santa Rosa, California
